Summer madness 

Music on Central, a giant-sized family reunion and more

A Gang at Gatsby 


Here's a small selection of the folks who assembled for last Saturday's Great Gatsby Party (benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Mid-Atlantic Chapter): (From left) Mitzi Lynch, Craig Lynch (national board secretary for M.S. Society), Diana Hoppa, Jim Hoppa (members of the M.S. Society Board of Trustees), Dick Roberts (local chairman, member of M.S. Society Board of Advisors for Mid-Atlantic Chapter), Ellen Thompson, Emerson Thompson (M.S. Society board members). Whew!

D's Nuts 

Darren "Captain D" shows fancy footwork -- and risks starring in a segment on MTV's Scarred -- last Saturday during the battle Slam Jam 2 event at Grayson Skate Park.

Somebody Slap Me 

The ladies of Klymaxx (that all-female R&B band from back in the day) took folks back to the '80s when they graced the stage at the Ebony Family Reunion in Eastover Park Saturday, Aug. 18.
